No drinking for 4 years

So I have a friend, and he has a friend who I've never really hungout with much, nor have I ever really liked.

He has always been a heavy drinker/user and I've seen him get behind the wheel like full-on drunk before. I can't say for sure, but I'm pretty sure I remember him getting a DUI or two in the past.

Anyways, like a month or two ago, he got drunk, drove, totaled his dad's car, and got a DUI. As a result, he has to wear an ankle bracelet that measures his blood alcohol content or something, and he can't drink at all until 2017.

So anyways, for me, it's one thing if a person drinks and drives. I mean, it isn't a good thing, but I know guys who can hold their alcohol really well and if they drive after having one or two beers I won't hold it against them. But I don't particularly like the activity of drinking, and I really just bothers the hell out of me when I see some young college-age kid driving drunk.

So when I heard about the punishment, I was just like "Good." But everyone else I know seems to think it's too harsh, and their reaction is more of a confused surprised reaction than anything else.

Do you think the punishment is too harsh?

Edit: Reading the poll, options 2 and 3 are basically the same, but whatever, you get the point.

He obviously couldn't handle it. Maybe in four years he'll be able to. I doubt it though. It'll probably be the most productive four years of his life though

He has to wear a bracelet on his ankle bracelet until 2017? Dang, that's harsh. My ankle feels.
But he did deserve it.

For the record, I'm not being serious. I think it's a fair punishment for drunk driving.

Idiot bastard deserves it. Shame he's only getting four years. Hell, shame he still has a license.

A just punishment, in my opinion.

Driver's licenses are handed out too easily and kept with too little discretion, I think.

I suppose drinking is a privilege that can be abused, and if abused egregiously you lose that privilege.
I mean I kinda wanna say that drinking is a right, but nah. I don't have sympathy for the guy.
